What our advertisers say

bailgate logo
Magazines always bang on about their readership profiles, sometimes this information is correct, sometimes it’s misleading, but it’s nearly always information provided by specially conducted sample surveys of purchasers or subscribers - not the entire readership. At Bailgate Independent WE KNOW exactly where the bulk of our magazines go. We do deliver quantities to newsagents, hotels and cafes, but the majority are delivered to the same addresses, every month in the mainly business and affluent areas of Lincoln and Newark. IT WORKS - See what some of our advertisers say:

b&oI first approached Tony in 2004 when the Bailgate Independent was a slender 16 Page publication. Bang & Olufsen became the magazine’s first advertiser not actually located in the Bailgate area. Some seven years later the Independent is the only local magazine we advertise in, it continues to be delivered to the “right locations” and we are delighted to maintain our professional relationship.
